Open MPI: A High-Performance, Heterogeneous MPI
The growth in the number of generally available, distributed, heterogeneous computing systems places increasing importance on the development of user-friendly tools that enable application developers to efficiently use these resources. Open MPI provides support for several aspects of heterogeneity within a single, open-source MPI implen. Through careful abstractions, heterogeneous support maintains efficient use of uniform computational platforms. We describe Open MPI’s architecture for heterogeneous network and processor support. A key design features of this implementation is the transparency to the application developer while maintaining very high levels of performance. This is demonstrated with the results of several numerical experiments.
